Realtek Announces the World’s First Highly Integrated and Smallest Automotive Ethernet-Based Camera SoC Solution at Automotive Ethernet Congress 2016


HSINCHU, Taiwan –February 02, 2016 –Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, today announced the world’s first highly integrated and smallest automotive Ethernet-based camera SoC solution, the RTL9020AA. This SoC integrates all functions required in a camera module, including Image Signal Processing (ISP), fisheye calibration, video compression (MJPEG/H.264), Ethernet MAC (with Audio Video Bridging), and 100BASE-T1 PHY. Target applications include rear-view and surround view camera systems.

Realtek is one of eighteen OPEN Alliance promoters promoting the adoption of single Unshielded Twisted-Pair Ethernet. The OPEN Alliance successfully established the IEEE 100BASE-T1 standard and expects that the 100BASE-T1 standard will be the mainstream high-speed network protocol in next generation vehicles. Through the release of the RTL9020AA, Realtek provides a competitive and complete automotive Ethernet solution that meets the increasing global demand for autonomous driving innovation. Realtek’s automotive Ethernet product portfolio now includes 100BASE-T1 PHY, 7-port Switch (integrated with 100BASE-T1 PHY), and a camera SoC. Key features of the RTL9020AA:

  • Target application: rear-view, surround view (360 degrees)
  • High definition resolution: 720p (1280 x 720) 60fps, 1080p (1920 x 1080) 30fps
  • Multiple IEEE standards supported 
    • IEEE 802.1AS, IEEE802.1Qat, IEEE802.1Qav, IEEE1722
    • IEEE 802.3 100BASE-T1
  • Fisheye calibration
  • Image Signal processing: 2DNR (2D Noise Reduction), 3DNR (3D Noise Reduction), and HDR (High Dynamic Range) supported
  • Both MJPEG and H.264 video compression supported

“We are very excited to provide the world’s first highly integrated and smallest automotive Ethernet based camera SoC solution”, said Realtek Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “Our integrated design makes the RTL9020AA the ideal choice for comprehensive rear-view and surround-view camera systems in automotive applications”.
